From the Russian frontier comes  the report of an important victory  over ��������������������������� the Germans by the Czar's  troops, in which it is said the enemy'lost in killed, wounded and'  prisoners, some 250,000 men. This  engagement took place in the vicinity of Rawa, and is looked upon as  the most important engagement in  which thc Russians have-been victorious since the. war" began.  In -the western front,: the Germans are directing'a strong offensive movement, against Thann, an  important' strategic position in the  Alsace, region, which; it is said, the  German war lord has declared musl  be" taken by his troops.

Oi' all times when a man should "put his shoulder to lhe wheel' and boost, those times are now.  Keep your mind on thc race and eyes straight  ahead.     "Trying limes"?   Ol course.

Of course, you could nol help  being caught to some extent through lhc sudden  coming of the world's grculcsI war.   Everybody  has had to suffer some set-back because of it���������������������������r  and wc may have to suffer much more yet.   But  there is no excuse for not looking ahead, now  lhat the war is on, and meeting conditions as we  find them.   To be forewarned is lo be forearmed.  To know whal is ahead is a source of strength to  thc man who wants to keep to the front.    Thc  man who i.s nol afraid to look ahead���������������������������to look  facts and his t'ellowmcn in the face, has won half  Ihe bailie in life.   Be prepared for the worst, but  light as though von were determined to get the  ������������������Kcst:  " "  " ~  Britain, wilh the seas open to her merchantmen, experienced a decrease in 19M, due lo lhc  war,'of %\7:3,000,000 in exports and'$355,000,000  in imports, as'compared wilh lhe preceding year.  Whal musl have been Ihe loss in-shipping lo her  enemies  WAR CONTRACTS IN CANADA  It is. estimated lhal since lhe war slur led orders  Tor war materials and equipment lo the value of  some sixty million dollars have heen placed in  Canada by the Canadian, British, French and  Russian (lovernments. Conlracls for outlining  Canada's troops have totalled $20,000,000. Contracts for saddles, leather goods, uniforms and  henvv winter garments of all kinds from the  British Government and allies total nearly another twenty millions, and orders for shrapnell  shell placed in Canada run from twenty lo twenly-  three millions.  These immense orders, distributed as well as  possible throughout every province, have given  a great impetus lo many'industries, and hundreds of factories and thousands of men otherwise idle will be operating full time throughout  lhe winter and well along into the spring and  summer.  The securing of these heavy conlracls from  abroad for Canadian firms is largely due to the  initiative and energy of thc members of the cabinet. Shortly after war was declared representations were made by thc Government lo the  British authorities thai Canadian industries  should be given an opportunity to lender on war  materials. As a result of these steps the British  Government sent a'former. Canadian, Mr. Fred  Slobarl, of Winnipeg,. to(.' the Dominion to see  aboul placing lhe contracts already stated.  The Press is in receipt of the following letter  from Mr. R. Robertson, manager of the Okanagan United Growers, which, while not intended  *for publication, conveys a meaning that we feel  would never be made known lo the growers of  the Valley if thc personal clement is lo hold from  Ihem the knowledge of the spirit which animates  the man at the head of their selling organization.  There can be no denying the fact that, if reports  arc true, the growers got out of this year's I'ruil  crop all too little. And it is but natural for them  lo turn lo thc man al thc head of the organization  to find someone upon .whom to place the blame.  No one can find fault with them for so doing.  Bul when this is said, and when lhat is done,  what then ? Explanations do not explain. There  is a principle back pf it all lhat is paramount to  all, and unless this principle is taken hold of and  lived up to, through lean years as well as fat  years, the growers of the Okanagan may as well  disband their organization at once and launch  boldly inlo thc cut-throat business. In his letter  to The Press Mr. Robertson says:  "Lei me express lo you my very high appreciation  of [he editorial in your issue of January 7lh, ancl thc  more so because of lhc facl that, as you know, it came  without any suggestion from the party involved. You  have expressed thc situation so clearly in this statement lhal it does not seem possible lo add anything to  -it, and I can assure you that as I look al the situation  calmly, if I did not believe thai il was the position  that was subject to criticism in the final analysis more  lhan lhe person, I have lo confess T do not believe that  1 could stand some of lhe things lhat have been said.  Although at Ihe present time there appears to be  facing us even greater diflicultics than we have had, if  our growers will only exercise a reasonable degree of  calm judgment ancl get the facts before they come-  to conclusions, I am sure lhat we can slill solve the  pressing difficulties in a way -which will result in the  growers getting belter "rclurns and consequently more  satisfactory conditions of life."  In speaking as hc has, Mr. Robertson has displayed a spin! of earnestness lhat can be found  only now and then in a man in his position. In his  work for lhc .growers of the Okanagan, he has  put heart���������������������������something that cannot be bought in a  salaried officer no matter how large the salary  may be.   His whole ambition in connection with  the" Selling Agency is to make good.   True, the  results of thc past year have not gone far to dispel the doubts and fears of those who by the very  nature of  their past experiences can  see only  failure in thc co-operative organization.- Fault is  found with thc management, and, of course, thc  individual must bear the brunt of'it.   Just so long-  as this policy is continued, there will be changes  and failures in the selling organization of  the  growers of the Valley.   It is so easy to stand loyal  to an organization when it means more prosperity, but it is not so easy lo be loyal when to be  loyal means temporary loss of a dollar or two.  Bill il is this lesson lhat thc growers of thc Valley  must learn.    If Ihey will stand back of their  present manager, and loyally support the Selling  Agency   organization   another season,   and another if need be, then will dawn thc beginning of  a belter condition.   But if a change of managers  is.lo be made every season, the Selling Agency  may as well quit business now, for il will be  impossible for thc growers to accomplish anything through it.   We have faith-in the Selling  organization.    We believe il is oh the only permanent, right course.   That mistakes have been  made, and will yet be made, there is no doubt.   It  has been the history of similar organizations the  worltFovci'"."   TriFWlj^llirmTgh^oVercoining^thc  dillicullies caused by thc mistakes that success  can be brought about.   And we believe the growers have faith in Mr. Robcrlson as the. man best  capable of finding a way out ot the dillicullies confronting them.

The third session of the Thirteenth Parliament of British Columbia opened at Victoria last  Thursday, with ceremonies wholly  lacking the customary brilliancy of  display, and strikingly exemplifying the stern seriousness of these  limes of war.  Of the  feature measures of the  session those which will doubtless  attract lhc greatest interest will be  the bills  for the  readjustment  of  constituencies   and    for   the   improvement of conditions obtaining  among the wageworkers and agriculturists, each of these measures  being  based   upon   exhaustive   investigation and report by a Royal  Commission in that behalf.      The  Royal  Commission  on   Redistribution���������������������������Hon. Mr. Justice Morrison and  and Hon. Mr. Justice McDonald���������������������������  has only recently reported, and its  findings     and     recommendations,  with the evidence upon which they  rest, will shortly be presented  to  the House  through the Executive.  The legislation which is to form the  sequel  of this  report will  be enacted this session, but this by no  means predicates an appeal to the  country until the natural expiry of  the term of the present parliament,  in November, 1916.   Indeed, it may  fairly be assumed from many significant  and -related  signs  of  the  times   that  British  Columbia  will  witness no election, either, federal  or provincial, during this strenuous  year. ;  The report of the Redistribution  Commission  is understood  not .to  suggest any.undue enlargement of  the legislative body, the maximum  proposed increase being five members.    It is believed  that for the  major cities representation upon "a  basis of population will,be adopted���������������������������one member, in all probability  being allowed for each 20,000 unit  or part thereof, Avhich would for'  the present,'make Vancouver's numerical strength in the House six  members,'while reducing Victoria's  representation from four, to three.  Each minor city, of from 5,000' to  15,000.,-pbpulation, will henceforth  be''it is predicted, entitled to.one  member,- while for the rural constituencies the population representation basis will be abandoned and  areas and . conditions of colonization  and  expansion be  taken  full  cognizance  of in" the  fixing of a  representation standard.   After the  next Provincial election, and under  the readjustment of Constituencies,  one may therefore expect to' find  Vancouver represented by six members   and   Victoria   by   three,   the  Rossland   and   Greenwood   ridings  being merged in the respective districts, and Atlin also disappearing  as a distinct constituency.   On the  other hand it may fairly be con-,  "j c"c t uT'Fd't liaTR ich~ihl>n"d=(wln^h^n7-  braccs    North    Vancouver,    South  from all interested, with a view to  the legislation in this behalf being  both practical and approximately  perfect when given its place  among thc laws of'British Columbia  and, secondly, because the present  is admittedly an inopportune time  for lhc notation of such a special  loan as will become imperative  when once the agricultural credits  plan has had placed upon il thc seal  of Parliamentary approval.  Legislation will be presented for,  the relief of thc debtor in certain  cases. The Attorney-General's department is now engaged in thc  preparation of a measure thc purpose of which will be to prevent  financial oppression and injustice  during the continuance of the wrar,  while at thc same time working no  hardship upon capital, and giving  no occasion for uneasiness or imaginations of insecurity on the part  of investors.  ButterWrapper  Parchment  Has made three jumps in price since the beginning of the war, and the price is still on  the up-grade. But we are still printing  Butter Wraps at the old price, and will continue to do so while the stock of Parchment  we have on hand lasts. * It is going.  The Walker Press  MUNICIPAL SINKING FUNDS  F. A. McDiarmid, solicitor for the  Union of B. C. Municipalities, in a  communication in the Victoria  Colonist, shows what the municipalities of the Province are losing under the present system of  handling municipal sinking funds.  The aggregate indebtedness of the  municipalities he places at $93,400,-  573. Assuming the average life of  loans at 25 years, the annual sum  "which is necessary to be paid, by  taxation from the inhabitants of  the municipalities, if the sinking  fund is calculated as bearing interest at 4 per cent, would be $318,494  less than if the municipalities only  obtained 3 per-cent for the sinking  funds (and his contention* is,that 3  per cent is all that most of the.rural  municipalities' are.,receiving-for, the  sinking-funds.)' He'argues that if  these.-sinking.- funds could. be; iri-_  vested,7in ���������������������������:-Government- -' treasury  notes bearing the-prevailing" rate of  interest���������������������������4 1-2 per.cent���������������������������the municipalities.-of "the Province would"  save the magnificent sum* of- S500,-  000 each year. He cites a, paving  loan, of.

As to the measures embodying  the findings respectively of lhc  Royal Commissions on Labor and  Agriculture, it i.s an open secret  lhat no attempt will be made lo proceed with them to finality during  the present session, the intention  being instead to introduce and debate them, then leave them wilh the  public for consideration and suggestions as to possible improvement, placing them upon the  statute book in 191(1. In the case of  the bill for the betterment of labor  conditions, advantage will be taken  of the delay in close observance of  the working out of similar legislation in Washington and in the sister province of Ontario, as well as,  less directly, in New York state and  Wisconsin.  The adoption of thc proposed  farm credits system is postponed  for dual reasons���������������������������in order that useful suggestions   may be   obtained  posited it in a 4 1-2 per cent, issue  of Government stock, and this is  only-oii-one loan.  This information is-published by  Mr. McDiarmid in view of thc resolution passed by the convention at  Kamloops arid submitted to the  Government, which reads as follows: "Resolved, lhat the Union of  B. C. Municipalities recommend the  _Go_v_ei:nment^lO-_creatc^a^4^1-2^pe!*=-  ccnt issue of Provincial slock, wilh  dates'of repayment suitable, so that  thc municipalities can have an  issue in which they can invest  their sinking -funds. This is to be  optional  wilh each  municipality."  The idea, he says, has much to  commend it. It* would help the  larger cities only to Ihccxlen't of  a half per cent, but undoubtedly it  would reduce thc taxation of the  people of lhc Province in a most  marked manner.  ly preceding Christmas Day,  MURRIN HARDWARE CO.
